Cams are made now by a few companies, but almost none are large enough for cracks called offwidths, which are a challenging genre of the sport where you squeeze and squirm half-inside the rock to gain upward progress.A new cam by a Denver mechanical engineer, Evan Deis, is among the biggest ever built.

The first dataset from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP) was released to the public on February 27th, 2017.
We were tipped off by Pamela Shanti Pack, a pro climber who specializes in offwidth cracks.
She is testing Deis’ prototypes on offwidths around the West.
Invented more than 30 years ago, spring-loaded camming devices changed the game of rock climbing by offering an easy-to-place, solid anchor that fits inside a crack.
Climbers clip a rope to a cam, and if they fall the device is made to exert force against the rock, most of the time staying securely in place.The Blackmagic Studio camera features a compact and durable magnesium alloy body that is packed with innovative technology, making it the most rugged, portable and advanced studio camera in the world.You get a huge 10” viewfinder with sunshade for optimal viewing and control, a flexible MFT mount that gives you more lens options than any other studio camera, multiple mounting points and professional broadcast connections.The galaxies are seen at such large distances that the light from them has taken billions of years to reach us.The light from the faintest galaxies was emitted when the universe was less than 10 % of its present age.Cracks up to about 1 foot wide can be protected with Deis’ cams.
